The Thumb-rules for wearing T-shirt with Blazer

‘Whether the combo of blazer with t-shirt is perfect or not’, this is one discussion that goes on and on. Turns out there is nothing wrong with this combination if you successfully pull it off. In fact, some fashion connoisseurs may not agree, but the easy going look coupled with an elegant edge is at times better than strict formals. Have you ever tried this combination? All those who have, knows that this look is really easy to pull off. At the same time, there are greater chances of going wrong in the same.

There are no set regulations when it comes to the semi-formal attire. However, there are certain thumb-rules that can boost your look effortlessly. Listed below are some of the basic points that you need to consider while pairing t-shirt with a blazer. Have a look.

Contrasting style

The t-shirt is considered casual while coats are formal. This contrasting combination does all the magic. Keep the mixture of the two in the same way. Choose the shades that contrasts and matches each other at the same time. For instance, white tee paired with black or grey suit and black or navy t-shirt coupled with white or other light colored suit is ideal. Choose the combination that is contrasting even if you are going for the t-shirts with patterns. For instance, if the tee have white and blue stripe or check pattern, then, navy suit will look ideal with it. Strike the right combination and half the work will be done.


This is a quasi-formal dressing style. Thus, the trouser should be paired accordingly. Make sure that you don’t wear the plated pants. However, you can go with jeans or even chinos. If you are wearing pants, then, it should match the color of blazer. On the other hand if you are wearing a jeans with it, then, you can ditch this rule. For casual occasions, the trouser that matches the color of t-shirt and contrasts that of the blazer will work as well. However, make sure that the shades don’t clash awkwardly. Keep it simple and subtle.


Fitting is the key aspect of the semi-formal attire. Get the attire tailored and make sure that it fits you perfectly. Right from the t-shirt to the trouser, everything should be paired perfectly. As a thumb-rule, the length of the sleeves of the blazer should not end past your hand and should be just above waistline. Similarly, the length of the trouser should end just above the shoes of the wearer. The baggy and over-sized t-shirt may appear cool, but it not a perfect option to be paired with blazer. So, make sure that the tee is sleek.

Neckline of the t-shirt

The neckline of the t-shirt should not be very deep. The idea is to keep it sophisticated and elegant. Whether you chose the round neck or v-shaped. The turtleneck looks good when paired with coat. However, this is an ideal combination for winter. Avoid choosing this pair during Summer.


The entire look is very simple and sophisticated. Hence, the ensemble that you pair with it plays a very vital role. Instead of going with the bedazzling bracelets and things of this sort, go for the subtle accessories. The classic leather-belt wristwatch is a staple. Along with this, the footwear is equally important. Sneaker and even loafers is perfect for the attire. You need not stick to the formal Oxford shoes. However, avoid wearing flip-flops, it can effortlessly break the entire look.


The style of men’s underwear should be considered as well. The seamless style of men’s thongs are ideal as it will reduce the risk of visible underwear line. Wear cotton underwear as it will keep you cozy all day long. You surely don’t want to seen adjusting your undergarment in public.
